    Speed - the step box goes where you would use it as a step to exit the cabin into the companionway. Many/most boats have a cooler there that doubles as a step and other things coolers do. You cannot have both. https://images.app.goo.gl/crRC3BC4JUYGRiqcA
  2. Thanks for the great recommendations. Started at IYAC, had an appetizer at Zeldas, walked the town and docks, to the extent possible, had a refresher at the Candy Shoppe, now back at Zeldas for dinner. I expect to finish the evening back at IYAC for a true round trip experience. Sailing Anarchy comes through again!
  3. Thanks for the responses so far. For clarification to MrLeft8, my evening is free as in available. I’m happy to pay for whatever I do.
  4. I’m in Framingham, MA and welcome any other suggestions. Obviously, given this website and my interests, Providence and Newport were considerations based on sailing. I also have a friend who may be able to meet, but he’s crazy busy and I can’t count on that.
  5. I’m from the West Coast and have a free evening tonight that I could spend in and around my hotel or take an hour Lyft ride to Providence or 90 minute ride to Newport. Which would you choose, if either, any places I should try to visit (dinner, drinks, sight seeing)? Other thoughts? I’ve done Boston recently.

    J/105 Companionway trim

    Still hoping for an answer on this - the electrical tape trim isn’t going to last foreverr

    Jordan - I think you are thinking of the hatch sliders, and yes aluminum is great for that. This is not that.

    J/105 Companionway trim

    I figured TAP would work, but they don't have anything even close, they sent me to Calsak Plastics who told me to check with the boat manufacturer, so full circle with no luck. The L-shape is important to hold the headliner back up and to cleanup the aesthetic of that area. Waterlines was very disappointing, I e-mailed them initially, then followed up with 4 (!) calls before they finally told me they could only get it in "like 7000' lengths". It's kind of crazy because you have to remove that trim to access under the headliner, which you have to do to replace any cabin top hardware. Our old trim was falling off on the portside but was so attached on the starboard side that I had to chip it off, taking some gelcoat with it.

    I must not be using the right term, this is not vinyl covered plywood or something you would mill. The trim is an 15’ L-shaped plastic trim piece formed to fit the corner radius’ at the forward end of the companionway. I’ve attached a photo from Waterlines, but they don’t seem to want to sell it to me.https://www.waterlinesystems.com/new-products/j105-companionway-trim-15-long

    No luck over on Fix Anarchy - try here: We are in need of a new trim piece that holds up the edge of the headliner where it meets the companionway. I've been trying to get an answer out of Waterlines without success so far. Is there an supplier of a pliable material so that I can just fabricate by own? Any other options? Thank you - Eric

    FWIW, Martec is in the repair and refurbishing business now. We had to get a replacement last year and they sold us a refurbished one for $900. They were very good to work with and helped immensely through a ridiculous cascading UPS screw-up. In our case one of the tines broke off the replacement prop due to unknown cause. Martec replaced the hub at no charge (we were able to save the blades).
  14. Given you refer to a local river and appear to live in western Washington, I'm guessing you may be referring to the Columbia and possibly the Sailing on Sunday series that happens (almost) every Sunday from Fall to Spring. If so, this is an extremely low key race where announcements regarding course, and other things possibly of interest to you, are made on VHF Ch 72. If you listen in before and around noon you'll hear the course and know where folks will be heading so you can avoid those areas if you wish. Even better though, is to consider joining in on the fun in your own boat and as crew for others. You will quickly learn what goes on, hopefully enjoy yourself, but no doubt be better prepared to avoid boat-to-boat issues in the future. More information here: https://sailpdx.org

    West Coast Sleds?

    Just got from vacation in San Diego, so don’t know any details, but what we happened to see around. Apart from several TP52s and similar, Rio 100 is at (and hard to miss) the Mission Bay Driscoll yard., and Cabron (sp?), a Botin 80, was at what appeared to be a guest dock on Shelter Island.
